Take one step of working on YOUR FAITH AND TRUST DIRECTLY IN HASHEM and know sincerely and wholeheartedly that everything comes directly from Hashem and in the Hands of Hashem as the famous line says “Hakol bidei shomayim chutz m’yirei shomayim”
May we all start to realize that Hashem runs the entire world 24/7 from every angle to everything that happens to every single person in the entire worldJuly 1, 2022 4:58 pm at 4:58 pm #2102408Reb EliezerParticipant

I’m reminded of the old joke:
Q: What’s the punishment for polygyny?
A: Two wives.

not necessarily, but two as a package (with ensuring interaction between them) surely is!July 2, 2022 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #2102460ujmParticipant
AAQ: you didn’t have to ruin the joke.July 3, 2022 12:08 am at 12:08 am #2102554Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
to compensate for the ruined joke, R Twersky talks about a miser who asked a Rav what to do with a quarrelling wife who does not accept a divorce. Rav quoted Gemora saying that an unfulfilled tzedoka pledge is punished by the early death of the wife. He says – great, goes pledges, comes back – she is not dying. Rav explains – this is supposed to be a punishment, not a reward! Go buy her gifts, talk nicely to her … does that, comes back – she is now very nice to me! Do you still want her to die? No! Then, quickly run fulfil your pledge!July 5, 2022 7:44 am at 7:44 am #2103311maxverstappenParticipant

My father a’h had a joke as Shlomo Hamelech says, it is better to go to a funeral than a wedding. So someone said that for him it is better to go to a wedding as they burry two people there.July 6, 2022 10:18 pm at 10:18 pm #2103888The_Silent_MajorityParticipant
All those advocating for polygamy on this thread, are you even married at all? Methinks no. Keep dreaming.
The sheer ignorance here of what a Jewish marriage is all about is tragi-comic.
